it's been a weird week...

..I've have a little bit of the "blue-uglies"..

..had some headaches and yucky tummy-ies..

..and have had trouble putting the letters to words in the right order {what some people may refer to as bad typing and/or spelling}

however, on the other hand..I've discovered a new language..

my own..

some of the words from this week have been Fall-o-Ween and firfotten..

the first is pretty self-explanatory..the season that's between Labor Day and Thanksgiving..{which is also known in my language as Thanks-mas..but that's an old post}

but the firfotten is a hybrid {doncha love it when you can use the "word of the moment" }anyway it's part forgotten and firgot..yes, that's the way I do say in "I firgot my car.." OK..I don't usually firget my whole car..maybe just the keys..

and the whole last letter-first letter thingie?  as in " just the" ..I type just he ..My granddaughter Emily, while in kindergarten, was known as "Emily Ke"

When her Mom asked her what was up with that, she told her she had already used the l-y..{her name is Emily Lyke}

We looked and sure enough, she did..E M I L Y K E ..

she's just as sound minded now that she's 11..bright kid.  Despite her grandmother..

ah well..just your average Tuesday..

(and no, I did not use the spell woud have imploded my whole system from this post...

You're a breath of fresh air, my friend. I love your muddled musing. I tried to create a new word myself to describe you, but I couldn't do you justice. I continue to be inspired by your mis-cues in the English language.

What fun! I love the new words thing and, really, isn't that how all new words come to be? It is all perfectly logical. Somehow, I'm not sure that you'd like that way of describing things. You are an incredibly unique and delightful voice in Blogdom.
